Format: Paperback
Daphne West's book is an excellent reference for beginners, up to about GCSE level or equivalent (it covers most, if not all, of the required topics for GCSE). Presenting grammar rules and usages in a simple, clear and effective manner (with one particular topic per page), with exercises covering the rules on the opposing pages, 'Teach Yourself Russian Grammar' is good for grasping the basics, or for refreshing the fundamental concepts.
Its value is limited, however, much past the beginner's stage - it doesn't, for example, cover gerunds or participles, and many of the different topics fail to cover some of the more complex rules or exceptions.
If you're new to Russian, and are baffled by the seeming impossibility of the grammar, this book is invaluable, however, and is a far cry from the complex minefields contained in many Russian grammars. It is simplicity and clarity - much like the language itself when you get to know it.

Format: Paperback
If I can offer any advice, buy another non pure grammar book along with this one. Of course grammar knowledge is essential but when you first start out you should concentrate on the alphabet etc and not confuse yourself with too much grammar. I promise you, if this is your first book on Russian, it will confuse you. Buy it to accompany another one, but not as your sole starting point.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a shame this is out of print and difficult to get hold of. Highly recommended. Don't get too worked up about Russian grammar. It will soon start to clear like fog and it will gradually make more and more sense. Just practice, practice, practice. This book holds your hand and walks you through it at a fairly slow pace. There are numerous tests to make you think and to help you keep a check on your progress.
